    Here is the video which was at your link.



    If this person says is correct, the Officer was justified in shooting brown.

    The city decided it was best to give the family $1.25 million before the trial of the officer ever began, pretty much sealing his fate.

    This and the local decision are perfect examples of knee-jerk reactions before the facts are known.

    Could what she said be true? I guess we'll find out.

    It will be interesting to see what forensics come up with. The scenario presented in the video certainly seems plausible and Brown's behavior on the surveillance tape would indicate an attitude of hostility toward authority which coincides with the officer's take on his state of mind.

    I suspect that if toxicology tests on Brown come back as positive for some kind of intoxicant the cop will not be found guilty. On the other hand, I foresee this case going to trial no matter what.

    I think it was the spouse. She knew alot about the exact story without hesitating. When I hear stories from another person who heard it from another person, some details get lost. She seemed very sure about the events and what happened. Not saying everyone is like me, but like a game of telephone alot of times things can get mixed up here and there.

    Not necessarily.
    It is third person, yes. But the information comes from the person's side of the story.

    You could be right. If I heard something from someone who heard it from someone, I would have a hard time repeating it with confidence. That could be his wife or girlfriend.

    Yes and when we all recall events, we tend to see it from our side, not the other side. Your side of the story is going to make yourself look good. Not saying it's not true but until all the facts come out, it's hard to believe either side at this point.
